Pardon Our Progress!

Throughout 2021, Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park will complete a number of road repairs and construction projects. Although these projects will improve park facilities and enhance the visitor experience, they will create temporary road and facility closures. We appreciate your patience and understanding throughout the construction period.

Are you a frequent park visitor? Bookmark this page and check back for the latest construction updates. There will be additional road closures, park improvements and other projects in the coming months. Changes in the schedule due to weather or other reasons will be updated here.
